It has finally happened. I needed to work and my wife wanted to shoot some virtual dudes, so she asked, "What's a game I can play other than Army of Two where I can shoot stuff and blow stuff up?"
Knowing she likes 3rd person games (and since this was part of my evil plan all along), I innocently looked at her and replied, "Hmmm...there's Gears of War."
"Let's try it."
After her first chainsaw kill, she was hooked. It happened as I had foreseen. When she strikes me down in multiplayer, I will become more powerful than she could possibly imagine.
